openMSX 0.7.2 - dev11297

The road to a new major openMSX release is as adventurous as an RPG. During the epic journey to openMSX 0.8.0, the barbarians, mages, archers, necromancers and elfs of the team gradually show new features in their so called dev versions. After a period of less activity, CheatMSX finally managed to put up a recent openMSX dev version, built for Win32 and Mac OSX.

A new feature, demonstrated at the recent Nijmegen fair, is the Reverse Timeline bar, from which you are able to jump to another scene in an instant. You don't have to download the standalone executable for LaserDisc anymore, because LaserDisc has been merged in the Win32 packages as well.

Naturally, if you discover anything spooky in this dev version, you can help the developers by joining their development IRC channel, accessible from CheatMSX.

Thanks people @CheatMSX! I'll try it ASAP. But could you also please compile the openMSX-debugger for Mac too?

Thanks!!! :D

Let me know, if it works for you.

But unfortunately it didn't work... ;(

Error: "The application openMSX_Debugger quit unexpectedly".

I tried starting it from a shell. This is the error displayed:

dyld: Library not loaded: QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore
Referenced from: /Users/frs/Downloads/openMSX_Debugger.app/Contents/MacOS/./openmsx-debugger
Reason: Incompatible library version: openmsx-debugger requires version 4.6.0 or later, but QtCore provides version 4.4.0
Trace/BPT trap

I'm using Mac OS X v10.5.8 on a intel iMac.

Basically, it tells you to install Qt 4.6.0 instead of 4.4.0 which you have now... it has a run-time dep on it, because apparently Hydragon compiled it against 4.6.0. (And the debugger doesn't support static linking (yet).)

I was about to ask if the libraries shouldn't be bundled inside the application as Apple requires, but I saw that means around 110MB of libraries inside the app... Not a good idea.

The problem is: The binary package from Nokia now forces me to install a lot of unwanted applications (67MB of it) together with the libraries. Isn't there a standalone version of the libraries anywhere? I'm searching for, but couldn't find any yet.

Nevermind. I just installed the Qt libraries with the tools.

The debugger is running fine. The only weirdness I could notice until now is that all menus have an ampersand ( & ) signal before their names, like this:

&File &System &View &Execute &Breakpoint

Nothing serious, though.

Hydragon: Thank you so much for compiling this! Big smile

So, except for FRS, did anyone try these binaries? If so, did you find any problems?

Please give feedback now, so we can still fix things before the next release.

@Fixato

The openMSX-debugger for Mac build 11376 still says it's version as 10055 on its about-box. Is that right?

Well, apparently there haven't been any changes to the openMSX Debugger since revision 10055
Since openMSX and openMSX-Debugger share the repository, it is hard(er) for me to see if there has been any changes on the debugger itself.
The openMSX Debugger still takes its version number from the Changelog, instead of the svn revision, which only gets updated when something has actually changed.

I'll see if I can make my openMSX-Builder a bit more intelligent by checking the Changelog as well, at least till the openMSX team has updated openMSX Debugger.

The builds I make from now on, will refer to the last committed revision for each project. So, the last build version of openMSX Debugger is now: 11151.
Please note that Debugger builds will now be placed in their own directory.

However, this 'latest' build will still show a wrong version number in the About window, since it still takes its version number from the ChangeLog, which hasn't been updated since an earlier revision. I've mentioned this to the openMSX team, since this is something only they can fix.

Okay, by using a kind of hack suggested by mth, I'm now forcing the CHANGELOG_VERSION to the latest committed revision.
